It was Alan Scott's mother who emphasized the notion that doctors were the same as God; one healed the body and the other the mind and soul. Believing that until he got older, he soon came to realize that some in the medical profession were vacant of honesty, sense, warmth, or understanding. This was learned through unnecessary pain, poor diagnosis, poorly mannered doctors and staff members. We are being over-medicated and over-tested. When the public sees ads about medications (especially new ones) that are more negative than positive, why is the FDA passing them through in the first place? You will find many of the problems and complaints in this book as well as what people can do to counteract them.

An excellent example of the recent attempts by anthropologists to give expression to the words and lives of respondents and to detail the context in which they are acquired." --Choice "Although the book is a very personal account of one shaman's life, [it] also provides a window into the ways and means of the Korean culture and society of the time." --Korean Quarterly, Spring 2001

THERE have been many biographies of hard men, geezers who would maim you as soon as look at you for insulting their dear old mums, but none like this. This is the incredible life story of a man who rose from humble beginnings to become the hardest man in the world. That man is Terrence Shirley Knacker. Given an effeminate middle name to ensure a difficult childhood, Terry fought and blagged his way to the top, conquering adversity and trampling on anyone who got in his way. Ultimately loved by few but respected by many, he has drawn celebrities, sports stars and politicians to him like flies to shit. In the pages of this book, Terry attempts to get his story across, occasionally with all the subtlety of one of his right hooks. Like its subject matter, it is not always a pretty read, but it will grip you by the throat and give you a couple of cheeky slaps for looking at it funny. So don't waste his time, put yer hand in yer pocket and buy it.

Signs of the Literary Times

This book is O'Rourke’s first volume of nonfiction since his 1972 The Harrisburg 7 and the New Catholic Left, which Garry Wills hailed as "a clinical x-ray of our society's condition." That book prompted Herbert Mitgang to name O'Rourke "one of the finest writers of his generation." Signs of the Literary Times provides new evidence for that assessment. It brings together O’Rourke’s unique mixture of literary, political, and cultural criticism published periodically during the last twenty-two years. The collection ranges from autobiographical essays describing his generation’s literary evolution, to articles on free speech issues, such as nude dancing and the Bush-era NEA controversies, as well as book reviews that provide a fresh and largely uncharted critical map of the period. O’Rourke is not only interested in genre bending and expansion, but in persevering during this age of academic specialization as, in his phrase, “a person of letters.” In the two decades between his first work of nonfiction and this volume, O’Rourke has published three highly acclaimed novels, The Meekness of Isaac (1974), Idle Hands (1981), and Criminal Tendencies (1987). Of the last, The Virginia Quarterly Review wrote, “Of all the novelists paraded in recent years by publishers as natural successors to Graham Greene, this one comes the closest. A thoroughly entertaining literary event.” Signs of the Literary Times is not so much a compendium of diverse pieces on various subjects, as it is a cogent and continuing x-ray of our society's condition.
